"Why must you lead, when I want to lead? If I want to dance I will ask you to dance. If I want to speak I will open my mouth and speak. Everyone is forever plaguing me to speak further. Why? What good is it to tell you you are in my every thought from the time I wake? What good can come from my saying that I sometimes cannot think clearly or do my work properly? What gain can rise of my telling you the only time I feel fear as others do is when I think of you in harm? That is why I am on this porch, Ivy Walker. I fear for your safety before all others. And yes, I will dance with you on our wedding night." ~ Lucius Hunt, 'The Village'


"I know how you clutched my back behind your house and sweated like a stallion whenever I come near! Or did I dream that? It's she put me out, you cannot pretend it were you. I saw your face when she put me out, and you loved me then and you do now!" ~Abigail Williams, 'The Crucible'

Near hysterical, laughing and sobbing..."Bad color! Bad, bad color! Bad c-color...!" ~ Noah Percy

"John, if it were not Abigail you must go to hurt, would you falter now? I think not." (Elizabeth Proctor)
"Now look you---" (John Proctor)
"I see what I see, John." (Elizabeth Proctor)
"You will not judge me more, Elizabeth. I have good reason to think before I charge fraud on Abigail, and I will think on it. Let you look to your own improvement before you go to judge your husband any more. I have forgot Abigail, and---" (John Proctor)
" And I." (Elizabeth Proctor)
" Spare me! You forget nothin' and forgive nothin'. Learn charity, woman. I have gone tiptoe in this house all seven month since she is gone. I have not moved from there to there without I think to please you, and still an everlasting funeral marches round your heart. I cannot speak but I am doubted, every moment judged for lies, as though I come into a court when I come into this house!" (John Proctor) ~John and Elizabeth Proctor, 'The Crucible'
